Usage Suggestions

I am relatively new to Subversion, so I was looking for advice on how
the following could be setup in Subversion. We currently work in Visual
SourceSafe, and are not totally satisfied with it. I want to have a
plan all laid out prior to possibly presenting a change to Subversion
to management.

We have three separate areas where we work on our code:
        1 Development this is where we do our development work for the
next release (ex. V3)
        2 QA this is where the quality assurance department does their
work on the current release (ex. V2)
        3 Production this is the last production release (ex. V1)

The flow is as follows:
         If there is a bug found in production, we fix it in production,
then move the code changes to the QA and Development versions.
         If there is a bug found in the QA version, we fix it in QA and
move the code changes to the Development version.

When we are ready to release a new version of the software, we move the
version that is currently in QA to Production, the version in
Development to QA, and we start development work for the next release
in Development. So with the version numbers from above we now have V2
in Production, V3 in QA, and we are starting work on V4 in Development.

What I need advice on is how to setup the repository and if and where
tags/branches should be used.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
